This calculator computes the body mass index and rates it appropriately for men, women, children, juveniles and seniors. The SBMI – an index that has been developed four years ago especially for this calculator – serves for this purpose. It is based on the results of the most comprehensive study* published so far on the BMI and its associated health risks.
Your weight is at a somewhat elevated level; in our view, it may be less than optimal for your health. Contrary to the WHO classification of "obese", we hold the statement that you are only "overweight".
Your body fat mass seems to be a slightly above average. But health ought not be affected provided your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels remain at moderate values. This could be more likely if you have a higher muscle mass and a lower amount of body fat.

DO NOT weigh yourself every day! You will drive yourself crazy.
Weigh yourself ONE DAY A WEEK and do it at the same time of day, preferable in the morning after you use the toilet and before breakfast.
I spent 3 weeks in a Rehab facility regaining my strength to walk back in 2012.
There was a digital scale in the hallway between my room and where PT and OT was conducted.
One day I weighed myself after leaving OT, had lunch, and weighed myself again on the way to PT.
I had gained nearly 2 pounds!!!
Then I realized that besides the solid food I had drunk two half pints of milk.
A pint is one pound of liquid.
